Editorial Reviews


"A bold new book ... an engaging journey through the history of 'the technium,' a term [Kelly] uses to describe the 'global, massively interconnected system of technology vibrating around us.'" 
-The New York Times Book Review 

"Kevin Kelly "radically rethinks the relationship between humans and technology ... Kelly's concept of the technium and his description of how it attains autonomy are original and timely." 

"... an exuberant book." 
-The Washington Post 

"...consistently provocative and intriguing." 
-The Economist
